It’s true. We are in a full-blown candidate job market. This is great news! We have been building toward this for the last few years – and here we are. Still, I know several of you are skeptical that this is the case. For you skeptics out there, enjoy this great infographic from TalentLyft outlining the many ways in which hiring and recruitment trends are changing to meet this new jobs-space.

If you are one of those hopeful candidates that have been enthusiastically applying and submitting your resume for various roles, and are not hearing back – it’s time to change something. Create a new resume. Develop a new format, power up your content, research key words, etc. Get noticed.

If you are one of those candidates getting interviews, but not the job – it’s time to change something. Practice your interviewing skills, research interview questions and interview techniques. Remember, a big part of being prepared for your interview includes research on the company. Review the company website, reach out to people you know that work for the company and ask questions. Do the legwork and be prepared for the interview.

This is your time! Time to start benefiting from your years of hard work, specialty training and acquired skill set. Show them that YOU are the talented individual they are looking for.

Let’s get to work! Talk soon.
